2019 DeMarini Voodoo One Review

By Bat Digest | Last Updated October 20, 2021


None of the hitters who used the 2019 Voodoo One fell in love with it. But, it is an adequate bat—especially in BBCOR. The USSSA and USA versions suffer from a smaller barrel. But, they do swing light and if you can find the sweet spot of the barrel it will travel.

Not much has changed on the 2019 Voodoo One. It comes in a number of sizes, sits in the value space, and delivers a decent value buy for the single-piece aluminum baseball player. Hitters who like it prefer the stiff feel and light swing. The barrel size is decent and the feel on mishits is manageable. The bat has not changed for several years and if you can find this one at a discount then be all over it.

General Recomendations

The most recommendable version of the bat is in the BBCOR realm. We like the balanced swing and stiff feel. Those who like single piece BBCOR bats (like the VELO or 519 Omaha) should put the DeMarini Voodoo One in their wheelhouse. USA and USSSA players will do well with these bats if they don’t have crazy expectations. Don’t expect a smooth smash on mishits and don’t expect a big barrel either.

OVERALL/10
The 2019 DeMarini Voodoo One in BBCOR is a single-piece bat with a balanced swing and a moderately sized barrel. Don't expect too much in terms of a great feel unless you can barrel it up. Our experience is that the better the hitter the less the bat matters. So, if you're a great hitter, this bat will likely do you really well.

OVERALL/10
The 2019 is DeMarini's second Voodoo One USA Bat. It takes after its other model lines in that it's a single piece aluminum with a balanced swing and a moderate to small-sized barrel. For its price, it is a great entry-level USA bat for the hitter who needs as much bat speed as possible and doesn't see the pitch speeds that might hurt hands if mishit. There are no changes from the 2018 version to this 2019 Voodoo One in USA.

OVERALL/10
The 2019 DeMarini Voodoo One is a single-piece aluminum bat built with a moderately sized barrel and a balanced swing. This is a no-frills bat. Meaning, there isn't anything terribly special other than its brand name and more reasonable price point. It can hit the ball hard in the right hands.

Comparable Bats

A single piece aluminum bat with an average swing weight is, to say the least, common. It is the most common type of bat on the market in fact. As such, there is no shortage of bats that are like the 2019 Voodoo One.

We’d start with a bat-like the 5150 or VELO from Rawlings, then check the 519 or 619 from Slugger. Easton runs with a Beast proline that we like a lot and is also a single-piece aluminum stick.

Previous Models

There aren’t any changes from the 2018 version to the 2019 version in terms of tech. The 2019 Voodoo One is, like the 2018 version, a single piece aluminum bat with a average sized barrel and a light swing weight.

Construction

The 2019 DeMarini Voodoo One is a single piece aluminum bat built with a balanced to light swing weight. A couple years back they upgraded the end cap, but the 2019 version sits much like the 2018 and 2017 versions of the bat. Don’t expect many frills, but do expect a good old fashioned bat.

Overall Ratings

The overall rating uses seven different weighted metrics to determine our overall score. Half of total rating comes from the player and our exit speed tests (Player Rating: 25%, Performance: 25%).The other categories are Relevance (20%), Demand (10%), Durability (10%), Resell Score (5%), and Tech Specs (5%).

(UR) Un Rated: An overall rating of UR means the bat has yet to be fully rated. When it is, this score will update.

(PlaRa) Player Rating: We measure player rating from user reviews. Those users include our own hitters that we test at the lab as well as reviews we find online.

(ExVe) Performance: Performance measures the exit speeds and distances we capture in our hitting lab with HitTrax using these bats.

(Relv) Relevance: We measure the number of sizes and the MOI of the bat. Bats with a wider range of options get a better score.

(Dmnd) Demand: Demand is measured by consumer sentiment and the buzz around the bat.

(Drb) Durability: A bat’s durability is measured by user reviews as well as feedback from manufacturers.

(ReSl) Resell Score: Based on the price the bats go for used. Higher prices mean greater user demand which means, generally, a better bat. A resell value closer to its original price means a higher score.

(Tech) Tech Specs: We rate the bat on its technological advancements from previous years and compared to the industry at large. This is our chance to reward companies who are trying to innovate.
MOI
MOI or Mass Moment of Inertia is a measurement of bat swing weight. This quantifies how difficult it is to swing a bat. The industry often refers to this as things like End Load or Balanced but those words have been overused to the point of meaninglessness. We measure the actual swing weights of each bat we test using the industry-standard pendulum period, balance point, and scale weight. You can read more about that here.
Price
The price is the original MSRP price of the bat.
Type
The types of bats are single-piece alloy (SPA), two-piece composite (TPC), single-piece composite (SPC), hybrid (Hyb.), and wood (Wood). Hybrid bats are made of composite handles and alloy barrles.
Date
The estimated date the bat began distribution.
